Event Rider Masters CIC3*
Event Rider Masters (ERM) is an exciting eventing series which was launched in the UK in 2016. It has unprecedented prize money for riders and a goal of showcasing the sport of Eventing to a new global audience through mainstream TV, as well as introducing new technology and reactive data to enhance the on and off-site experience for supporters of the sport.
The initial series had six legs with the finale being held here at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials. In 2017 the series has expanded in to Europe with a total of seven legs.
The classes feature 40 of the world's leading event horse and rider combinations, balloted by FEI rider ranking points ensuring a top-flight competition featuring the very best in the world.
ERM offers a total of £400,000 in prize money across 2017, with each leg promising a minimum of £50,000 as well as a £50,000 series rider bonus.
With dressage and show jumping taking place in the Marlborough Arena in front of Blenheim Palace on Friday (15th) and Saturday (16th) morning respectively, then cross-country with the top 20 in reverse order in the parkland on Saturday afternoon, we will again be provided with an exciting, nail biting finale to this spectacular series.
We were delighted that the final leg of the inaugral 2016 series was won by Thomas Carlile and the popular Upsilon. Oliver Townend was also crowned 2016 series champion at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, having amassed 100 points during 2016.
